"You work with the devil" : mean we are all in that train for the end of mankind. A great movie i still have in memory. The memory of our being is not going through our ADN cells, but by our brain and conscience (remember the prophetie).

Subject: "Different Type of Team-up" hah!
Were you people raised in a cave or something? They made many MORE films together in NON Dracula roles than they ever did otherwise.

The Skull, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Gorgon, (this film) and Dr. Terror's House of Horrors all come to mind and I'm sure I could think up several others if I wished.

This, however, is a pretty good film...too bad it's still under copyright and having it here will probably see the Internet Archive go the way of divx Stage 6 and other services.

Subject: Solid Cushing/Lee team up
Like others have said it was nice to see a different type of team up between the two. Also enjoyed the short cameo by Savalas who always seems to play great characters. Downloaded the 490 mb mpeg4 and it played really well on my zune.

Subject: quite good actually...
It was great to see Cristopher Lee and Peter Cushing together without them(actually)going at each other fang and stake.

Subject: Classic Horror Great
This was one of the first horror movies that I watched at the cinema turning the grand age of 18. I loved it then and my thoughts have not changed. The Lee and Cushing partnership works just as well on train as it did in a castle in Transilvania It was good to see them not playing their cape and stake parts! Telly Savalas surprised me with his role, I have seen him in other films, playing the bad guy in a James Bond film and does anyone remember 'capricorn One?, both were good but this was a much better part for him.

Subject: B-Movie excellence
I know, my subject title is an oxymoron. This really is a great piece of horror film though. Decent performances, good costuming and an interesting 'monster'. Loved every second of it!

Horror Express is easily one of my all time favourite classic horror films. It has all the hallmarks of greatness. Firstly it stars 2 supremo horror actors, the late great Mr Peter Cushing and the equally brilliant Mr Christopher Lee. Secondly it has a story to die for including, a alien entity that is bought aboard the the Express train frozen in a "missing link" monster. (But frozen not for long!) An evil being that drains the memories of the living through simply staring and hypnotizing its prey, turning them into white eyed corpses. Mouth watering creature and camera effects, man this is one creepy entity. A finale that includes a horde of undead zombies amassing towards a trapped group of passengers on a speeding coal fired locomotive. And much, much more. Oh and lest we forget a strong supporting cast including Telly Savalas. Horror Express quite simply has some of the most memorable and genuinely chilling scenes and imagery of any horror film, period. An absolute horror classic. Don't miss this gem. I've seen it no less than 5 times since I first discovered it a few years back and it never ceases to feel fresh or pack the same powerful punch as the first viewing. This is a very rare feat.

Subject: A classic among B-movies
As low-budget schlock theatre pictures go, this one hangs together surprisingly well. This was an excellent example of sets and miniatures being effectively recycled from a bigger budget picture. The slightly psychedelic cinematography and weird synthesizer music are artifacts of the era in which it was produced. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee turn in credible performances and Telly Savalas is, well, Telly Savalas. Kept waiting for him to whip out a Tootsie Pop and say "Who loves ya, Baby!"

Subject: incredible
This movie is incredible.one of the creepiest and best made movies ever.I am seriously stunned archive.org has managed to get it on their site.
Reviewer: seerofeverything - - June 9, 2008
Subject: Excellent!
I watched this film when I was a kid dirung the 70's. It scared the hell out of me, and it still does. This used to be featured on "Fright Night Theater" then, and it still stands out in my memories. This was classic acting by the polular Perter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Let's not forget the exceptional work by Alberto de Mendoza as a Rasputinesc priest. I highly recommend this film as an absolute must for horror film buffs. Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Telly Savalas. What more can you ask for?

Subject: Surprisingly good
This movie surprised me a lot. I did not expect to find a movie s
this good in the library. It is perhaps not the best work ever done by Lee and Cushing, but absolutely worth watching. It makes for an interesting one hour and thirty minutes.

Adding to that, the quality of this download is acceptable for watching on an iPod or, as I did, a 1024x768 screen.

The movie is a three, but gets a four because of Lee and Cushing.
